ELEM ELAR 5A / Print

Language Arts: Reading
Fifth-grade students judge the logic of stories and identify the purpose of different types of texts: to inform, influence, express, and entertain. They describe how the author's perspective affects the text, and they produce research projects using visuals to support meaning.

Language Arts: Phonics/Spelling
Fifth-grade students review phonics skills through spelling and writing activities. The spelling word lists are developed around phonics elements, spelling patterns, and high-frequency words. Writing is integrated in the independent activities, allowing the student to apply correct spelling skills. Weekly assessments include writing sentences from dictation.

Language Arts: Grammar/Composition
Fifth-grade students write to express, influence, inform, and entertain. They generate ideas, develop drafts, revise and edit drafts, proofread, refine, and publish their work. Grammar concepts such as the eight parts of speech, types of sentences, capitalization, and punctuation are covered throughout the language arts curriculum. View TEKS.
